Fluid under the elbow can be from inflammation of the bursa of the elbow and is called bursitis. The elbow gets swollen at the back and swelling protrudes and can cause discomfort.
Dr. Jain is an expert in urgent care and took care of the patient on the same visit. Dr. Jain did the x-ray and blood tests. X-ray did not show anything and the swelling of the elbow was drained and 8 ccs of fluid came out. The patient felt relief.
